It was a beautiful fall day in Rye, NH. The sound of the waves and the distant sound of seagulls in the air was very welcoming on our shoot with our two best friends, Nate and Alina! Alina’s family has a beach house in Rye where she spent her childhood summers making this beach engagement photo shoot even more special for them.Nate and Alina have been together for about 4 years now and have shared so many good times together filled with love and laughter. They are always understanding and take good care of each other, which of course, makes us as friends so happy to see! It is a privilege for us to be taking their beach engagement photos and watch them grow even closer together as they plan for the next step in their relationship. Getting married next august, Nate and Alina will make for the world’s most adorable married couple. Since the day they started dating and Nate introduced us to Alina, we knew they were a perfect pair!
We started our shoot on Jenness Beach, taking adorable photos of them strolling down the beach hand in hand and sitting looking into each others eyes. Nate and Alina are the sweetest couple, always laughing and making jokes! We always have a blast with these two and love how easy it is to take photos of the happy couple.It was quite windy, and the waves were big due to hurricane Joaquin offshore. People walking the beach with their dogs may have photo bombed us with their furry faces a few times, which off course we welcomed with laughs and smiles!
We moved locations to Alina’s parent’s beach house, where we got to take advantage of some fun and unique backgrounds. We always love taking engagement photos in a location that means a lot to the couple, and since these two have spent a lot of time together with Alina’s family here, it only seemed fitting to use it as a backdrop for some adorable photos. To pay tribute to Alina’s father, we made good use of his lobster signs and traps in the photos, which really made for some unique images that really capture a lot of wonderful memories for this adorable couple. Why not take photos in the middle of the street?! Some of our favorites from the engagement photo session are the photos we made on Sea Rd with the ocean in the distant background and the canopy of beautiful trees. Not only was the ocean a wonderful view, but Sea Rd. is lined with beautiful beach homes making for an absolutely elegant feel to all these photos!
Next we made our way to Fuller Gardens. These beautiful grounds overlooked the ocean and were filled with bright flowers and classic stone walls perfect for some different beach engagement photos with this cute couple! They are so happy together and it is clear that they compliment each other perfectly and will share such a full and happy life together. I mean, come on guys, look at those smiles! We are so excited that they found one another and that we were able to capture the true happiness they share being around one another.
We can’t wait to celebrate with them on their big day next August, and although we are guests at their wedding, we are honored to be able to take their beach engagement photos and be a part of such an important time in their lives.
